Manitou teases major CONEXPO announcement

Manitou has announced that, at CONEXPO, it will introduce five new MTA series telescopic handlers designed for the North American market—the MTA 642, MTA 842, MTA 1055, MTA 1242 and the MTA 1255.

The company claims that all of these new models hit industry sweet spots for lifting capacity and maximum height, and deliver operator and design characteristics that drive premium performance and operator satisfaction.  

The new models start with the 74-horsepower MTA 642, which boasts a lifting capacity of 6,000 lbs at up to 42 ft, and go up to the 127-horsepower MTA 1255, which lifts 12,000 lbs up to a maximum of 55 ft.

Two new models—the MTA 842 and the MTA 1055—feature both a 74-horsepower and 127-horsepower option to give fleet managers the flexibility to add the telehandler that best matches their service preferences. Moreover, the 74-horsepower models require no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to meet emissions standards. 

Each of the five new models will be announced fully at CONEXPO 2023 and, according to the company, will be available at Manitou dealers later in 2023.
